Rob, that bike you put together with the .75 person looks f'n nice!! I think that's the route I would like to take. I read the post where you went step by step mounting the batteries. Do you have something like that for mounting the motor? Since you have already been through the process could you list what parts I would need to turn this bike into something fun to ride. Thanks in advance, you guys are geniuses when it comes to this stuff.
the motor mounting was a simple L bracket, theres a sick sick deal on an industrial right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

this has an internal fan and requires a 1/2 inch sprocket

as for the motor mounting its in my post, 2 bolts through the L bracket and into chassis above the stock motor, then locked down with 3 6 inch hose clamps from home depot.. Cheap and easy and SOLID
NOW , CONTROLLERS
well if you are surely running 48 v i actually recomment lower voltage than 48 with the yk43b.. take notice i only ran mine at 36v for 40mph..But your heavier.Heres the slightly more expensive option on 48v that will be reliable and offer a good top speed that would go best with the rebel gear but not necessary
The motor and sprocket above with batteries with this controller at 48volts

65 plus ship
so the controller, batteries , charger, and motor are done , now a throttle

This combo with the stock rear gear and 14tooth motor gear give a top speed of 32.07 mph or 30 in the real world.. the accleration will be nice but not exceptional with 220 on it.very smooth ride and a range of 5 miles while cruising, maybe as high as 10 milES.. NEED A ROBUST ON OFF SWITCH ON THE POSITIVE SIDDE FROM BATTERIES TO CONTROLLER
